Description

Come along to learn how to make high quality container candles in a relaxed, friendly group. You will learn to make candles using fragrances and colours and, in this 3 hour workshop, you will be making three candles in a glass container, a tins, and a teacup to take home.

This workshop is for people who would like to make candles for their own use and for gifts. It is not suitable for people looking to set up a candle making business as we do not cover the relevant legislation and regulations legally required to sell candles.

This is a great place to start learning the craft of candle making, safely and to a great standard.

During this 3 hour workshop, we will focus specifically on container candles.

Maximum Workshop: 4 People

You will find out about the different kinds of candles which can be made along with different types of wax for specific types of candles, and how to add fragrances and colours.

We will also cover health and safety aspects of candle making for personal use, and safety labelling for your own use as well as if you are giving a candle as a gift.

We are gradually changing the type of wax which we use from soy to a non-soy vegetable wax. All the ingredients we use are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

We will have time to discuss using repurposed containers for candles such as tin cans and jam jars. Also we can discuss making other kinds of candles such as pillar candles, wax melts, floating candles, striped candles, and much more.

The workshop includes all tuition, supplies and use of equipment for you to make three container candles (including one in a teacup and saucer) using colours and fragrances from a selection available.

Please note that teacups and saucers are from some which I have collected. There is a variety and some may not match exactly but you are free to have a look through the selection which I have and make your own choice.

Please let me know if you have any fragrance or skin allergies when booking.

This class is suitable for adults over 18 years old only. If you are not sure if this workshop is suitable for you, please ask any questions before booking - always happy to help and advise.

Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring your own travel mug or similar if possible.

Didnt realise how technical it was to achieve great and consistent candles. Going to a class reminds you there's always something new to learn. Thanks Sally. Great session. Lovely candles to take home. We will definitely give it a go.

Sally is a great teacher. Her preparation for the course was very thorough. She gave me great notes for reference and lots of sensible, practical advice. She is planning a soap making course which I will certainly make sure to attend.

My partner and I attended Sally's brilliant course on candle making using containers. Sally is an excellent tutor. She covered all aspects of candle making from health and safety, materials needed, adding colour and fragrances and the processes. The session was informal giving everyone the opportunity to experiment and ask questions. Sally makes everyone feel relaxed and able to achieve. After the session Sally follows this up with an email providing information on our learning experience as well as links to information for buying resources. A great session. Many thanks Sally.

I signed up for this workshop because I buy a lot of candles and thought it might be fun to try making my own for a change. It was such a good decision - Sally is the perfect tutor and makes the workshop a truly creative and informative occasion. I would recommend it for anyone who fancies trying something a little "crafty" - no previous experience required! I came home with three gorgeous smelling candles, one in my own cup and saucer which I am thrilled to display in my bathroom.
